Since its inception in April 2011, Sublime Boudoir: Seduction of Senses has brought audiences elegant burlesque, cabaret, and circus performances in fantastical settings, while entertaining the senses with unconventional visuals and signature cuisines.
Founded with the intention of highlighting well-known performers as well as up-and-coming artists, Sublime Boudoir provides a collaborative creative environment for industry professionals. The company seeks to redefine and challenge traditional ideals of the industry by combining burlesque with complementary artistic mediums. Painstaking research and attention to detail provide audiences with an immersive and multidimensional experience, Seduction of Senses.
Constructing annual events on a global level, the creative team represents a vast range of cultural histories and perspectives, from Europe to Indonesia to North America. They have travelled the world in search of inspiration and the most exciting new performance artists. Complemented by breath-taking floral design, music, and cuisine, every production epitomizes luxurious elegance, underlined by cabaret’s signature playful humor.
Beginning with a dazzling launch in Amsterdam, 2011, Sublime Boudoir treated guests to a four-day event, appealing to a different sensory experience; Seduction of Senses took place in a separate venue every night, each event inspired by the personality of its surroundings. More than 35 performers were featured, culminating in a spectacular gala evening in Amsterdam’s historic Koepelkerk.
Sublime Boudoir’s London appearance was an unprecedented venture for the company, held in the logistically-challenging Old Vic Tunnels. Audiences embarked on a journey from the opulence of 1920’s London to the glittering markets and theaters of Old Shanghai. More than 200 staff transformed 25,000 square-feet of bare event space, featuring more than 30 performers on five stages, hundreds of thousands of flowers, three art installations, lavish sets, and custom costume designs from Alston Stephanus Accessories, Jakarta.
Sublime Boudoir has been a proud sponsor for the annual Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender Event at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. A four-night event, Sublime Boudoir transformed the traditional after parties into whimsical worlds of wonder.
Embarking on their grandest endeavor thus far, for one weekend Sublime Boudoir at Alder Manor in Yonkers, New York brought to life the 34,000 square foot Victorian mansion, complete with a swimming pool on the second floor. The theme told the story of death and rebirth. It was by far the most immersive event, allowing guests to wander the fully decorated halls and rooms to discover what ominous energy the house contained. Alder Manor was like the pages of a book, and the host and performers narrated the story, supported by the incredibly themed food, floral, set, and lighting design. This event was truly magical.
